NVIDIA and ATI Cards Working Together Side-by-Side, This Is Revolutionary!

The guys at hardspell.com have tested a system with a Radeon HD 3850 for the graphics rendering and a GeForce 9600 GT for the PhysX:


They used the oZone3D.Net PhysX FluidMark to compare CPU PhysX (score=759) and Hardware PhysX (score=2909). This is the proof that Radeon and GeForce can work together for a better gaming experience!

Links:

The functionality of CUDA and its implementation of GPU-accelerated PhysX processing has benefited many a GeForce user. Users of ATI accelerators lacking this incentive either use Ageia PhysX card or avoid it altogether. It has been verified by Hardspell that in an environment where Radeon accelerator(s) do graphics processing, a GeForce accelerator can be used standalone to process PhysX. Hardspell used a Radeon HD 3850 along with a GeForce 9600 GT on the same system with the display connected to the Radeon, though no form of multi-GPU graphics connection existed, the GeForce card partnered the Radeon well in processing physics, while the Radeon did graphics. Results of the oZone 3D FluidMark, a benchmark that includes routines to evaluate the machine’s capability in processing physics, showed a greater than 350% increase in scores, showing that the GeForce accelerator is doing its job.

BFG GeForce 9600 GT OCX and 8800 GT OCX Review

1 comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/18 at 10:18

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , , , ,

Guru3D has published a review on BFG’s GeForce 8800 GT and 9600 GT in their OCX version. OCX means OverClocking eXtreme. Both cards have the ZeroTHERM cooling solution.

BFG 960 GT OXC:
– GPU: G94
– shader processors: 64
– core clock: 725MHz (ref=650MHz)
– shader clock: 1850MHz (ref=1625MHz)
– memory clock: 972MHz (ref=900MHz)
– memory: 512Mb GDDR3 / 256-bit
– DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1

BFG 8800 GT OXC:
– GPU: G92
– shader processors: 112
– core clock: 700MHz (ref=600MHz)
– shader clock: 1728MHz (ref=1512MHz)
– memory clock: 1000MHz (ref=900MHz)
– memory: 512Mb / 256-bit
– DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1

Read the complete review here: BFG GeForce 9600 GT OCX and 8800 GT OCX review.

The verdict:
The OCX cards tested today both qualify as cards among the best we have ever tested. Though it would have been nicer to see a black PCB or something special, everything else is just top notch. Excellent thermal design, low temperatures while retaining a low noise level.


MSI GeForce 9600 GT Hybrid Freezer Review

1 comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/08 at 09:32

Categories: Graphics Cards, VGA Coolers   Tags: , , , , , , ,

This graphics card by MSI, is equiped with MSI’s new cooler using Hybrid Freezer technology. It offers a total silence in idle (normal Windows operation) as well as in loading (during intensive gaming). This card has 1Gb of onboard memory that can help when the gamer wants to play at ultra high resolution (but in that case, the gameplay is limited by the power of the 9600 GT so ultra high res gaming is not an good example of application of 1Gb of memory). Anyway, the cooler is the key of this GeForce and temperature stays around 46 degrees in idle and does not exceed 65 degrees in full load.

MSI GeForce 9600 GT Hybrid Freezer has the following features:
– GPU: G94
– stream processors: 64
– core clock: 650MHz
– shader clock: 1625MHz
– memory clock: 900MHz
– memory: 1Gb DDR3 / 256-bit
– DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1 / Shader Model 4.0

Sparkle GeForce 9600 GT Passive Cooler Review

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/07 at 09:46

Categories: Graphics Cards, VGA Coolers   Tags: , , , , ,

Guru3D has just published a review about the Sparkle’s GeForce 9600 GT passively cooled with 512MB GDDR3 memory.

The GeForce 9600 GT has the followinfg features:
– GPU: G94 (or D9M)
– shader processors: 64
– ROPs: 16
– transistors: 505M / 65nm
– core clock: 650MHz (ref: 650MHz)
– memory clock: 900Mhz (ref: 800MHz)
– shader clock: 1625MHz (ref: 1600MHz)
– memory: 512Mb DDR3 / 256-bit
– DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1 / shader model 4.0

The Verdict:
With a pretty standard amount of airflow in the PC the core temperature of this passively cooled product just did not exceed 60 degrees C. And that’s pretty extraordinary as I’ve seen active cooled solutions at much higher thermals.

With such great temperatures I did what I normally do not do with a passively cooled product, I overclocked it. Standard clocks are 650/1600/800 for the core, shader processors and memory respectively. We boosted performance up big-time, by overclocking the card to 766/1955/1053 MHz. That is 10 to 15% extra performance straight out of the box there. For a passive product that’s just an astounding overclock.

Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT Silent Heatpipe Review

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/08/04 at 09:58

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Guru3D has published a nice review about Galaxy’s GeForce 9600 GT Silent Heatpipe.

For the sake of memory, here are the features of the GeForce 9600 GT: built on the G94 GPU 65nm (also called D9M), 64 shader processors, DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, 512Mb GDDR3, 256-bit memory interface, 650MHz core clock, 1600MHz shader clock and 900MHz memory clock, 505 million transistors.

Read the complete review here: Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT Silent Heatpipe review.

The Verdict:
Galaxy’s GeForce 9600 GT 512MB Silent heatpipe graphics card is once again a fine product to own.
I like the somewhat customized design and I definitely am charmed by the cooler. Even on a hot day, it performed good enough in our test-environment. You however will need decent airflow inside that PC of yours to get that residual heat from the innards of your PC and you need to remember that the cooler is pretty bulky.

NVIDIA illustrates HD movie transcoding capabilities of GPUs

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/05/30 at 08:58

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , ,

We already knew NVIDIA is going to heavily promote the HD movie transcoding capabilities of its GPUs through CUDA but here are some very specific numbers. According to the slide it takes a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU 10 hours and 22 minutes to encode a 2 hour long HD movie while a 3GHz quad-core processor finishes the job in 5 hours in 33 minutes.

The same 1.6GHz dual-core system with a GeForce 9600 GT will be able to complete the job in only 49 minutes! That’s more than 12x as fast and the GeForce 9600 GT isn’t even a high-end part. I can imagine that faster GPUs like the upcoming GeForce GTX 280 will be able to do it much faster.

iChill GeForce 9600 GT ZEROtherm Hurricane

Be the first to comment - What do you think?  Posted by JeGX - 2008/05/29 at 10:44

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: , , , , ,

Guru3D has reviewed Inno3D’s iChill GeForce 9600 GT with the ZEROtherm Hurricane cooler.
Read the full review HERE

The Verdict:
Much like any other GeForce 9600 GT this product offers a lot of value for the money you have to pay for it.

And once you pop it into your PC, you’ll notice that sheer silence and formidable cooling that the ZEROtherm cooler offers.

First off although this cooler is fantastic it eats up an insane three PCI slots which is just impractical. As a result you’ll have less connectivity in the PC and you definitely can forget about partnering two of these cards up in SLI.

Despite of this small error in judgment on Inno3D’s behalf, this product remains one of the best 9600 GT money can buy.


ASUS EN9600GT Matrix – Hybrid Cooling

Categories: Graphics Cards   Tags: ,

The cooler consists of a large aluminum heatsink with heatpipes, which will be enough to keep the card cool when watching movies or doing less stressful tasks, but in case you do want to game a bit, there’s also a fan that will kick in when the temperatures rise. Besides all of this, ASUS has spent some time designing the cooler, giving it a sleek and clean look.
